Alex Witkowicz


Alex is a Director of Photography that is regularly hired to film documentary, docu-style productions, and high-end interviews.

In 2022 he was nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy for his work with Vice News Tonight. 

Equal parts journalist and technician, Alex is as comfortable conducting interviews as he is lighting them, and has worked as both newspaper photojournalist and magazine photo editor. In 2022 he completed Hostile Environment Training in Los Angeles, as well as Firefighter Academy (structure and wildland) in Colorado, where he is a volunteer firefighter.

An accomplished outdoorsman, Alex has skied first descents in Svalbard, scuba dived fjords in Iceland, mountain biked Western China, and climbed 35 of Colorado's 14,000' peaks.

He has worked as the MultiMedia Editor for Skiing Magazine, and was a founding partner of Gociety, a VC-funded outdoor adventure social network.

He has worked extensively throughout the US, as well as Bolivia, Panama, Mexico, Guatemala, Chile, Norway, and Canada.  He lives in Colorado with his wife and daughter.

Why Hire Me?

  • Adaptability: I can work as a one-man-band (self-shooting PD) managing sound, picture, and lighting, or I can build out a specialized crew for any given project.
  • Range: I bring to the table the ability to field produce and co-direct. Many of my assignments for news outlets involve only myself and a location producer, meaning that my responsibilities extend beyond just the camera.
  • Relationships: I have strong working relationships with producers, sound recordists, AC's, grips, composers, make up artists, rental houses, photographers, and other camera operators in the region that can be leveraged based on the needs of the project.

  • Experience: I've been shooting professionally for 15 years, and I bring with me a refined sense of artful storytelling and professionalism.
